A nice refreshing drink on a hot, humid day.

My parents gave me some Orange Crush in glass bottles. I don't drink much soda but it hard to resist one in a glass bottle. I think it taste better and gets colder then those in plastic bottles.

My dad's hometown is about an hour away from where I grew up. We would often make the trip down. One of the highlights of the trip home was a stop at Roots Store. It was a tiny little country store. We would be allowed to go in and select a bottle of soda and a snack. I still remember the old cooler where the drinks were stored and how hard it was to pick just one out of all the choices. It really is the simple things that matter.


  1. ah, yes, the coolers filled with glass bottles---not many of them left

  2. I put a bunch of these in a graniteware bowl for our party. I used a variety. It was the hit of the party no one drank the plastic ones.

  3. Nothing tastes better than soda from a bottle! So glad that you posted this, there are somethings that money can't buy.
